You've never had a hard drive fail before? I mean not even spin up on power up? I've had more than a few, and the ability to share my selections (especially when we are talking about dozens of apps, some of which I forgot I even had to install) with people new to Linux (I'm slowly converting everyone I can) would be a nice feature. Sure you can do all of it manually. But by that logic we should all be using LFS and not someone else's distro. There are times were it is okay to let someone else do all the heavy lifting, and other times where you should do it yourself. And we each make that choice, since no single answer is right for everyone all the time.
